Molecule is designed to aid in the development and testing of `Ansible`_ roles.
Molecule provides support for testing with multiple instances, operating
systems and distributions, virtualization providers, test frameworks and
testing scenarios. Molecule is opinionated in order to encourage an approach
that results in consistently developed roles that are well-written, easily
understood and maintained.

Molecule uses `Ansible`_ `playbooks`_ to exercise the `role`_ and its
associated tests. Molecule supports any provider [#]_ that `Ansible`_

.. [#]

Providers can be bare-metal, virtual, cloud or containers. If Ansible can
use it, Molecule can test it. Molecule simply leverages Ansible's module
system to manage instances.
